Default Arm rest/fake wood finish for SX4

Hey guys, anyone know if there is an arm rest for SX4 available aftermarket in NCR region? There is no listing from MGA for such accessory. Has anyone SX4 owner put up an arm rest? or does anyone know of any shop in NCR that has it?


This is what I found out in ebay.com .

Also, I have seen some couple of SX4s having the fake wood panels finish (for daskboard, four doors etc.). And there is no listing from MGA either. Any idea where I could find them in NCR?

Your help will be very much appreciated!

This is what I got in my SX4, though its not very effective for arm rest, but very good for storing few things. Got it from a shop in Gurgaon

@rkbharat - how much do you got that arm-rest for? And the shade and color do not seem to match with the central black plastic shade of the car. Or is it just me or is the because of the picture quality. Also, was just wondering if you dont get beige cover instead of black for the upper leather cover.


I also saw this fake wood finish interiors panels (dashboard and doors poor window strips) for SX4, and to my surprise, the pack does not come with the rear door panels.

the name of the shop is Car Raunaq,sec 16,noida.Its on rajnigandha chowk opposite the haveli restaurant.The cover on top of the armrest can be changed very easily to match the colour of your interiors,as it is fixed by a couple of screws.

I have put them, check out my gallery. The fake woods are from Autographix. It contains wood finish for the dash and front doors only. It other markets depend on the cost they have for the rear doors also, but here only for the front doors.

I was also planning to put the armrest, why it's not comfortable though it serves some storage space.

I got it for 800 Rs, and yes color is not matching with central black plastic. I could not find the matching color. Also no beige cover instead of Grey. I have asked my accessories to get a beige color cover for it. Will get it in a week or two

Actually the portion that comes out to front, is very less and you can not rest your complete arm on it. Its just the elbow that gets the support.

You need something like there in Safari..

Default Re: Arm rest/fake wood finish for SX4

Has anyone tried fake wood finish panels from Autographix for SX4? The photos on net aren't confidence inspiring. Also the fake wood shade doesn't seem to match the factory fitted one on the door pads.

Was wanting to spruce up interior a bit but wary of el cheapo accessories in market. Having burnt finger with chrome handle covers want to be sure before buying.

Guess have too much of time to kill. Khali dimag...

I have a new unused armrest for SX4 lying, let me know if you need it !
Please dont use the fake wood panels , a friend of mine had it and they were no good.
